Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Jump Scare

Hi All,

Quick question. I am trying to spawn an actor directly in front of my player camera. What i am trying to accomplish is when the camera hits the trigger box, then the picture i am using as a "Ghost" spawns and scares the bajeezes out of the player.

alt text I tried to get the actor to spawn using get location, but then it only spawns on me. I tested this with a particle as well. This is a good thing to learn because the project after this i will be spawning particle effects as "Magic" and I don't understand why it spawns directly on me, instead of maybe a foot from the camera(Not that I would want that with the magic, that would be like.. 5 or 10 feet away from the camera, but still.) Right now it is in a still spot and i am changing the visibility, but im not getting the desired effect.

Also curious if it would be better as a HUD/GUI pop up...? Honestly not sure.

Thanks! Austin

Remove the middle vector, the rotationXVector one, and you should be fine.
